NSW Premier Morris Iemma has apologised unreservedly for last night’s peak-hour train chaos in Sydney and has promised voters it will not happen again if Labor is returned to government.
Rail services to North Sydney and beyond ground to a halt…
Is it time for Morris to step down as Premier?
Update: I walked over the bridge tonight, and noted that the train made it a bit further south than last time: it was stuck in the middle of the bridge. Walking proved to be more effective, I think, than waiting for rail buses – I’ve never seen such long queues in my years of working in North Sydney.
A lot of fragments of conversations (that’s all you hear when you rush over the bridge) were recalling the last broken-down train, but there wasn’t a lot of calling for accountability.
Perhaps it was just a lofty political promise made in the shadow of a looming election.
